Poem: Don’t dip in the antiracist pool

Hmmm… come to think about it. Modern-day antiracist thought is not so refreshing.
Definitely not enticing like a pool.

Don’t dip in the antiracist pool!

It’s not inviting at all,

cold and toxic as hell

and too shallow —

though still at a level

where one can drown.

The pool kids —themselves shallow

crowd the basin, back to buttcheek

crap all over the place,

are keen on kicking and splattering

and even more appalling—

keen to cannonballing.

Plug your ears to the pool party din.

Walk away from the wretched waters

and plop yourself under an umbrella,

fully blocking the pool view.
